This is the very best Interview-Video, thus far, incorporating your use of IL-2 (and now COD) video footage, including your cutting-edge skills in excellent green-screening techniques, in 'visualizing' the aerial combat action discussed in the Interviews! Superb. It outclasses most, if not all, of the History Channel and Military Channel documentaries of this sort. I've calculated that 28% of the screen time in this Bomb Finney Interview consists of IL-2/COD footage. That is a significant portion of the piece.

This video serves to demonstrate the great possibilities available in the use FlightSim 'footage' to tell a documentary story of the sort for which History Channel(s) utilizes very expensive and complex CGI.

Another very long feather in your Cap, Biltongbru!!!

S!

Hi cheesehawk:

Engine cut-out was definately a problem; when they suddenly pushed the stick down then the engine would starve of petrol and thus almost cut out; it became evident in this interview at t 6;30 sec:



Myth not busted!

Thanks for that, I look forward to Mr Finney's reply.

About the negative G cutout, in this film starting at about 24:00 Douglas Bader, Robert Stanford-Tuck and Sir Stanley Hooker explain about the pitfalls of the gravity fed carburettor and why it is was used instead of a direct fuel injection system such as those found on the 109.

If you're outside of Britain, you might not be able to view the film...sorry.

It makes me wonder whether you should think of come up to Durban and interview, and make a video on, my "Arnhem men"

Hi thanks Rob

I have sent you a pm regarding your idea with the "Arnhem men" I think it is a good idea
